Author's notes

Grasshoppers were extremely numerous round Maffra Lake edges in the sedge beds filling in the margins as the water level drops, but all but this nymph were too flighty for me to photograph. There appeared to be several species present. I'm surprised there weren't hordes of ibis or some such feeding on them.
